Hell get a chance to continue a careers worth of dominance against them on Sunday in his San Francisco debut, as Giants try to avoid a three-game sweep at AT&T Park. Watch the Giants vs. Dodgers live tonight on TSN at 8pm et/5pm pt. A former National League Cy Young Award winner with the San Diego Padres, Peavy was 1-9 with a 4.72 ERA in 20 outings for the Boston Red Sox this season. However, his run support average of 2.76 was the second-lowest among all AL starting pitchers. "This is what I showed up to do at the beginning of the year: to try and win a World Series, and this team certainly knows how to get that done," Peavy said. "It starts with getting in and trying to win your division. To be thrown right into the middle of that, as I was last year, its exciting for me." Of course, Peavy will also be reunited with his former manager, Bruce Bochy, who was his skipper with the Padres. "Ive always admired how he plays the game. Hes all-out, full-bore in everything he does. Hes a guy you want on your club," Bochy said of Peavy, whose nickname is, appropriately, Bulldog. "Hes as tough of a competitor as any player Ive ever had; these guys are going to love him and his approach to the game. "Im excited about having Jake here and I know hes excited about coming back to the National League and this division." Perhaps the most important reason Peavy was obtained is the fact that he is an incredible 14-2 lifetime versus the Dodgers with a 2.21 ERA in 25 starts. Hes limited the Dodgers current roster to a combined .177 average with four home runs and 12 RBIs in 113 at-bats. On Aug. 25 last season, Peavy pitched a complete-game three-hitter at Dodger Stadium, allowing just one run. Peavy jumps right into the fire on Sunday, as the Giants fell a half-game back of the Dodgers in the NL West on Saturday thanks to another brilliant effort from Clayton Kershaw. The two-time NL Cy Young Award winner tossed a two-hit shutout to win his ninth straight decision in the Dodgers 5-0 triumph. "Most clubs are trying to do now is get him early, and when you do that and you dont get him, you get a low pitch count," LA manager Don Mattingly said. After totaling eight runs on 15 hits on Friday, the Dodgers finished with 11 base knocks on Saturday. Adrian Gonzalez went 3-for-5 with an RBI, Juan Uribe had a pair of hits and two runs batted in and Carl Crawford scored twice. The Giants have now dropped their last three. "When youre going against one of the best you have to find a way to scratch and claw for runs," Bochy said. While Peavy will be debuting for the Giants, the Dodgers will also be throwing an impressive hurler in Hyun-Jin Ryu, who is 11-5 with a 3.39 ERA. Ryu won his second straight start on Monday in Pittsburgh, as he held the Pirates to a pair of runs and five hits in seven innings. Ryu is 3-3 in seven starts versus the Giants with a 3.24 ERA. Despite the two losses to start this series, San Francisco is still 7-5 versus the Dodgers this season. Wholesale Mavericks Jerseys . PETERSBURG, Fla. Cheap Mavericks Jerseys Authentic .

As a result, Robbie Keane scored in the 47th minute to give the Los Angeles Galaxy a 1-0 victory over Vancouver, stretching the Whitecaps losing streak at Stub Hub Center to five games. Since joining Major League Soccer in 2011, Vancouver has not won a game on the road against L.A. "In two seconds or five seconds, we lost the game," Vancouver midfielder Gershon Koffe said. Despite the temporary loss of focus, however, Whitecaps coach Carl Robinson viewed his teams performance as a solid one. "We showed that we were able to compete with the top teams away from home," Robinson said. "One minute of lack of concentration at the start of the second half cost us." The Galaxys Juninho began the scoring sequence with a long ball from midfield to Stefan Ishizaki on the right flank. With the Whitecaps Jay DeMerit marking him, Ishizaki saw an unmarked Keane racing toward the goal. Ishizaki sent the ball to Keane, who volleyed it with his left foot innside the left post from six yards. Ray Spalding Jersey. Kekuta Manneh had two chances to give the Whitecaps an early lead but Galaxy goalkeeper Jaime Penedo foiled him both times. In the 32nd minute, Manneh struck a 10-yard line drive that Penedo deflected while diving to his left. Then in the 45th minute, Penedo blocked Mannehs point-blank shot seven yards from the goal. "He was electric in the first half," Robinson said about Manneh, who made his first start of the season. "I think it would have been a different game (if Manneh had scored). I felt we were slightly on top in the first half." Vancouver displayed a dynamic defence during that half despite missing midfielder Matias Laba, who was suspended after being ejected April 5 against Colorado. The Whitecaps hustled after disputed balls, intercepted passes and applied pressure throughout the field. The Whitecaps had a chance to force a tie in the 77th minute, but Penedo leaped to grab Kenny Millers 8-yard glancing header off Nicolas Mezquidas corner kick. Penedo finished with four saves.
